Pro-Trump televangelist Kenneth Copeland claimed that God told him that the coronavirus will be over soon because Christians’ prayers “have overwhelmed it,” notes Right Wing Watch.
Copeland claimed that he was lying in bed on March 13 when he supposedly received word from the God, which he quickly wrote down:
This disease called COVID-19 will be over much sooner than you think. Christian people all over this country praying have overwhelmed it. Give Me all the glory, saith the spirit of grace. And many, many people will come to know Me through it. I am still Lord over this nation and I am on the throne and faith in Me changes things!
Copeland also claimed the Democrats had “opened the door to a lot of this”:
There’s been some really nasty things that have happened this year—last year and this year—that I’m quite certain—well, I know—opened the door to a lot of this. Displays of hate and hatred by politicians toward the president. And hate on both sides. The Democrats hate him, and we have some people that hate them because they hate him.
Copeland said God had removed his “divine protection” over the U.S., which is never mentioned in the Bible for any country:
This fussing and this fighting going on in this government just opened the doors wide to this country just to bring this trash in here and just slam us with it. When we get to hating people in this nation openly and publicly in political office and it breaks down the divine protection over this nation, we get hit.
